Gemma, was my second Belgian, in her younger days she was a very successful showgirl and loved to show off in the ring and one of her favourite passtimes was stirring up my other dogs. In her later years she was a tad on the chubby side and spent her days lazing on her (my) bed or the couch, with her friend Ebony (Aust Ch Nairam High Light). Gemma battled hip dysplasia throughout her lifetime, finally her hips/legs gave out and the extremely difficult decision was made to end her pain and give her sleep. She was the sweetest of girls, who although she could never have puppies of her own to love, loved all puppies with a passion and often took one of our other girls puppies under her wing.
Gemma - my tears will eventually stop, but my memories of you never will. May you find peace at the Bridge with your friends Max, Jade, Bobby and especially Candy's little pups, who you can take care of - Love you always my gentle girl.
In The Sky
There is a star in Heaven
and on it is a place,
that's been reserved for you since birth
a place meant for your name.
This star has watched you through the years
but it could not stand alone,
it rested high on angel wings
awaiting your trip home.
You slipped away, I held you close,
your soul flowed through my heart,
I felt your last breath through my tears
I felt your pain depart.
Tonight I looked up to the sky
and there for me to view
was one lone star shining bright
your name was shining too.
You were my angel on this earth,
you're my angel in the sky.
Wait for me, someday you'll see
our names shine side by side.
